Al Qaeda Turns Out Hollywood Quality Post-Nuclear Apocalypse Art


infowars.net

Is Al Qaeda farming out their propaganda to Hollywood artisans?

According to Rupert Murdoch's The Australian, the above image turned up on an Al Qaeda website. Or on a website populated by people who claim to be Al Qaeda. Actually, the image was supplied to The Australian newspaper by an American agency that claims to monitor Al Qaeda websites, and then sells what they find for big dollars to the American, and world

It has now been proven that the image in question is really just a screen grab from FALLOUT 3.

Here is another screen grab fom the FALLOUT site.

Most likely this propaganda was lifted from the FALLOUT 3 home page fallout.bethsoft.com...

That is a scary photo,
look how real it looks,
and how real it is.

Im sure their ARE terrorists out there, that are trying to obtain a nuclear weapon.

that image is a pre-apocolyptic vision, if that were to occur, can you possibly imagine the response from the US?

This is concept art from a video game. It's the third installment of the popular Fallout series.

That picture is from the game Fallout 3, due to be released this year. It is a post apocolyptic game made by a well known company. I am pretty sure that game designer "bethesda" is not a sleeper cell for Al Qaeda, or a group of terrorists. It looks like a good game.

Damn those slippery AQ artists. I guess if the original image is copyrighted then that'll be another charge against them at Gitmo.

Great reply by our Anonymous friend busting this one wide open.

Goebells himself would have been proud of the attempt, but the truth is out there and these days, its easier to find

I'm having trouble figuring out what point you're attempting to make?

A radical Islamic website lifted an image from a video game to help sensationalize it's call to use WMDs on western targets? And your point is?

Somehow you "connect the dots" and conclude that this is some sort of Rupert Murdoch conspiracy and then tie in Fox News as well.

Umm... yeah... right.... great catch their Ivan. Keep up the good work.

or news.com.au decided to add the artwork themselves and make it all up , and no `radical islamic website` was involved at all; ever.

no other news souce has this image or mentions a radical islamic chat room/ web site

and murdoch owns FOX as well as news.com.au

Murdoch owns Fox. Murdoch owns the company thats posted this.

Responsible Journalists check everything before they report it.

Propagandists use things to their own ends, by manipulating them.

Yeah Holleywood maybe, for realism maybe they should show Tehran. If they don't straighten up they may be seeing ashes..in fact they may become ashes.

Ooops! Looks like more evidence of "sloppy" journalism, and big suprise at who is involved. As was pointed out above, the "news source" should have checked its facts and presented all the information instead of filtering it to their own ends. Corporate owned media is not to be trusted.

Absolutely laughable.

They're taking screenshots from video games now and using them as proof Al-Qaeda is a threat?

Where do they get off? Seriously.. where do they get the balls to do this?
It's like it's some sort of sick game to them.
See how far they can push the envelope and publish pure garbage until somebody notices...

If their seriously trying to push this as Al-Qaeda than that's just scary, the propaganda corps. must be starved for new material or something.

The original source says this was published in the Australian weekend newspaper, that's funny I don't recall even seeing it, and I get the paper everyday.
